We are searching for anyinformationabout my Uncle, PFC George R. Gibson. He was with the 94th Infantry Division, 376th Infantry Regiment, Company I (we believe). He was killed in action on March 23, 1945 in Ludwigshafen, Germany. We know he received the Silver Star and had the Combat Infantry badge. All other family records were lost. We tried to get copies of his official records but were informed they had been destroyed in a fire where they were stored.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi. Im the son of deceased Lt.Col. Donald G. Apt who served in the 301st field artillery,A battery from 43 to 45.Back then I think he went from private to corporal to sgt and was awarded an air medal for being an airael observer,a silver star,bronze star,purple heart and a few more but dont know what they are or if I can confirm through the army.If there is anyone out there that might remember him,please email me.With a last name like Apt it shouldn't be too hard.

He wouldn't say too much when he was alive and after studying the history of the 94th, I can see why.please email me if you know anything about him or the 301st that would be helpful. click HERE to email me

To whom it may concern,
I just found some letters my grandfather has written to my grandmother during the war. His name was Louis Tatter from Chicago. He was the assistant to the division Chaplain. Not sure if anyone has any stories about him or if anybody remembers him but I feel that this is a good place to start.

Thank you for your time,

Subject: Photo of James E. Graham "Jimmy" F/376/94th Division

Jimmy Graham This is a photo of my uncle, James E. Graham. He was in Co. F., 376th Infantry, 94th Div. His platoon leader was Lt. Wilford P. Wilson and his Company Commander was Capt. Phil Whitman. The photo was probably taken in 1944 (possibly while on leave). I posted a similar message several years ago, but my email has changed and this is an update.

Does anyone remember Jimmy Graham? Jimmy was MIA 10 Feb 1945 at Bannholz Woods in Germany. One of his dog tags was found years later in the grave of his Platoon leader Wilford Wilson (as the Army was closing files on MIA from Bannholz Woods). I have been doing a lot of research on my uncle and would like to hear from anyone who may have known him from the time he was at Camp McCain until MIA. I recently discovered that Jimmy received a Bronze Star as did others in his unit. I assume that the Bronze Star may have been for F/376 action in the weeks prior to 2-10-45. Does anyone know why he may have received a Bronze Star? The photo is not of good quality, but it is the best I have at present. I am also looking for any other group photos, photos in Europe, or any photo that may Include my uncle, Wilford Wilson, or anyone from F/376/94. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My father, James M. Osman, served in the 94th-302 Inf. Reg. as a machine gunner (30 cal. water cooled), and was captured on or about January 21 or 24, 1944.  He was then taken to Stalag XIIA then to Stalag IXB, Bad Orb, where he was liberated April 2, 1945.  He was 30 years old at this time, and had a nickname of "Gar."  Not sure if he used that nickname during his time in service.  I have no idea which company, batallion, or squad he was in, and know almost nothing about his experience during the war as a soldier or POW.  My father died in 1983.  Many years ago he told me a story about some men trying to steal food from the kitchen, and were surprised by either a guard or cook, whom they hit on the head and killed or nearly killed.  As a result he and many others were forced to stand barefoot in the snow until the men stepped forward and admitted the infraction.  I am in the process of putting together a DVD slide program containing pictures and scanned documents my mother has given me, and would be very grateful and honored if anyone would contact me who might have known him.  Also, if you have any pictures, documents, etc., I would be very pleased if you could email copies so I can add them to the DVD.  At the time he was inducted into the Army he was living in Columbus, Indiana and was inducted in Kentucky. My email address is click here to email me and home phone is 843-399-2925.  I have unlimited long distance and will be happy to call anyone who has any information.  I offer my respect to all the Vets, past and present, for their honorable service, and to the owner of this site. Thank you all.James Osman Jr.
